Assisted Living in Brentwood, Franklin and Williamson County

Located just south of Nashville in beautiful Middle Tennessee, Williamson County is considered one of the most desirable suburban locations in the state.  Williamson County is known for its excellent medical facilities, pristine recreational offerings and public parks, high-performing schools, multiple churches, strong business climate, and wide range of restaurants and retail choices.  Brentwood and Franklin are located in the northern part of the county.  Residents of both are typically affluent, with a high median income. Brentwood is known for its large public parks and its impressive homes and Franklin is best known for its beautiful and historic downtown.  Both cities regularly appear on lists of the best places to live in Tennessee and the South.  The southern part of the county is still primarily rural and used for agriculture.  Williamson County's overall affluence is also attributed to the sheer number of country musicians and other celebrities that have part-time or full time residences throughout the county.
